Michael Page vows to ‘rebuild’ after loss to Ian Garry

Michael Page does not appear to be deterred by his UFC 303 loss against Ian Machado Garry.

Former Bellator contender Page (22-3 MMA, 1-1 UFC) suffered his first octagon defeat this past weekend in the form of a unanimous decision to Garry (15-0 MMA, 8-0 UFC) at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. It was a big moment for “Venom” after winning his promotional debut against Kevin Holland in March, but he could not get over the hurdle.

MVP has remained in silence since his defeat to Garry on Saturday, but on Thursday he finally shared insights on social media, and were positive in tone (via Instagram):

When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal. #ufc303

After nearly being submitted by Garry’s rear-naked choke in the opening round of the welterweight bout at UFC 303, Page rallied to take the second round. The third frame came down to the wire, but ultimately the judges scored it in Garry’s favor.

In the aftermath of the event, UFC CEO Dana White stated that he scored Page vs. Garry as a draw.

It’s unknown at this time when Page, 37, will return to competition.
